Liverpool’s line-ups for Tottenham according to Alexander-Arnold and Gomez’s decisions

Another day, another great game for Liverpool. And a huge test for the 19-game unbeaten streak.

An away match at Tottenham Hotspur is never easy, so Jürgen Klopp must choose his strongest team.

What is it then? There will be plenty of changes following the midweek League Cup win over Leicester City, but not so many for the team that defeated West Ham United in the Premier League last weekend.

The big question is whether I should remember Trent Alexander-Arnold and, to be honest, I wouldn’t. Joe Gomez has earned the right-back spot and will be a little more defensive-minded, which the Reds will need.

Alisson Becker is in goal, with Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate as centre-backs and Andy Robertson at left-back.

For me, the midfield needs to be a little more solid, and I would give Alexis Mac Alister and Curtis Jones as a deep pairing with Dominik Szoboszlai permission to run even more than usual.

Above is Mohamed Salah on the right, Darwin Nunez in the center and Luis Diaz continues to get the nod on the left. That bench looks strong, though.

My team (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Gomez, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Mac Allister, Jones; Salah, Szoboszlai, Diaz; Nunez

Liverpool return to the Premier League against Tottenham in what is their biggest test of the season so far.

And with Jurgen Klopp making ten changes for the midweek win over Leicester City in the League Cup, expect a much-changed team once again.

Trent Alexander-Arnold appears to have made it through the team’s training unscathed this week following a hamstring injury, with Klopp all but confirming that he expects his vice-captain to be available.

So he will be able to immediately return to the starting lineup.
Andy Robertson and Virgil van Dijk also return after missing Wednesday’s win against the Foxes.

Meanwhile, in-form Joe Gomez could get the centre-back spot. He has impressed so far this season and, although the right-back door may be closed, he deserves to keep his place ahead of Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate.

The rest of the squad pretty much picks itself, with Curtis Jones returning to his preferred midfield role following his exploits at right-back in midweek, alongside Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister.

Meanwhile, a trio of Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz remains the first-choice attack, although Cody Gakpo and Diogo Jota both scored against Leicester.

My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Szoboszlai, MacAllister, Jones; Salah, Nunez, Diaz

Dominik Szoboszlai gives his approval to brilliant new Liverpool song sung by Reds fan

Liverpool fans have a new song for Dominik Szoboszlai and the Hungarian has already given it his stamp of approval.

The £60million midfielder has been a success at Anfield since joining the club from RB Leipzig in the summer.

His goal against Leicester in the Carabao Cup earned him comparisons to Steven Gerrard.

A Liverpool fan loves the Hungarian so much he created a new song for him and posted a clip of him playing the new track on his guitar on social media.

To the tune of Don McLean’s “American Pie,” the melody says: “My God, Dominik Szoboszlai, he’s from Hungary and he’s going to make the Reds fly.

“Like the old days, when Bill Shankly was alive, when he sang that, that’s my Dominik Szoboszlai, that’s my Dominik Szoboszlai.”

The new song is being well-received by Reds fans, but it’s not just Anfield fans who are excited about it.

Szoboszlai himself also seems to like it and liked the music video for the song on Instagram.

The 22-year-old has scored two goals in eight games since signing for Jurgen Klopp’s side and will no doubt hope he can contribute again for his side’s trip to Tottenham on Saturday

The Reds should benefit from the return of Trent Alexander-Arnold from injury.

Meanwhile, Tottenham could be without three stars who started in the north London derby against Arsenal.
